This is another winter warmer full of spice, but it has the added bonus of the sweet fruitiness of the mango, papaya and orange. Although I couldn’t taste any of the white chocolate, the sharpness of the fruit was not as prominent as I expected, so it must work to blend and add a touch of creaminess to the cup.
It’s such an inviting tea in the tin, as is J&J’s Girlie Grey. It’s lovely to look at as the different ingredients pop out against the dark brown assam, and the smell is intense but very pleasant. Very sweet from the choice of fruit but with classic winter spice.
It’s tastes just as good too. It’s another tea that I immediately want to go out and share with people. It would be great to have as an afternoon refreshment when you all sit down having spent a long time out in the cold.
The tea in the background works very well with the other flavours. In my opinion sugar and milk won’t get anywhere near this cup as it is sweet enough as it is, and any more creaminess will take away from the sweet definition of the fruit which help distinguish this blend.
